Default acai berry and colon cleanse anyone?

I'm seeing ads for this everywhere? Anyone try it (and if so, which one?) Do they work? Sounds too good to be true, but even if it helps a little, I'd be tempted by a free trial....

Colon cleansing is a scam, don't do it, etc.

At best, you'll have wasted money on a completely ineffective product. At worst, you'll damage your digestive tract.

Unless you have some kind of medical problem, your colon "cleanses" itself. If you do have a medical problem, then go see a doctor. If you can't afford a doctor, then don't waste your money on a scam.

EDIT: Also, I guarantee you that there's some kind of expensive catch to the "free" trial. It's a scam. There's no reason to trust the people running it.

Colon cleansing is indeed a scam, but people still keep falling for it, even after hundreds of years of being scammed.

Acai berry is an anti-oxidant...no different than blueberries. If you like acai berries, then eat/drink them, but they don't have any magical health properties.

Fruits, vegetables, fiber from wholegrains/wheat, and water are all you need for a natural cleanse (better known as a daily BM). Save your .

Just a warning: If you don't cancel the acai berry free trial if don't like it, they will charge you 40-80 or so dollars every month. I work in the fraud department at a bank and people always try claiming these charges as fraud. We can't consider them fraud since they did give the company their account number. Those companies are sneaky!!

Thanks to everyone's 'fraud' posts here on colon cleansing - I just sent back my Dr Natura's Colonix kit UNOPENED!! Seems it's nothing more then a natural laxative...and I don't know about you, but eating lots of fruit makes me regular. So I'm gonna stick with the natural stuff.

Kurls, if you had to provide your credit card information, then you really need to call the company and cancel any programs you unwittingly enrolled in. The customer service people will give you a hard time--it's their job to discourage you from canceling. In fact, you may have to call multiple times. However, you just have to be firm and keep from getting upset. Do it ASAP, before they start billing you.
